Zygote Formation in Humans

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Zygotes are single cell that is generated after the egg has been fertilized by the sperm. The zygote then merges chromosomes from both of the gametes. After which, several divisions will take place for the production of embryonic cells at roughly four days after fertilization. The zygote stage lasts for only about 4 days in total. On and around the 5th …

Cell Culture Medium Growth Medium

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Culture medium also called growth medium pertains to the liquid medium necessary to carry out a culture and sensitivity test.  The substance acts as a mode of support and nourishment for the cells undergoing culture, and may also contain growth factors necessary to generate cell change. Cell culture medium, often referred to as growth medium, is a nutrient-rich solution used …

Adipose Tissue Derived Stem Cells ASC Therapy

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Adipose tissue pertains to fat, which is primarily made up of fat cells known as adipocytes. [1] Adipose stem cells or “ASCs” are an source of therapeutic mesenchymal cells for younger patients or those seeking cosmetic treatments like stem cell breast treatment and stem cell facelifts.  Unlike the limited quantities of bone marrow derived stem stem cells “BMSCs” The adipose …

Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation Procedure & Recovery

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Autologous stem cells such as Adipose tissue derived stem cells are the opposite of allogenic stem cells, as only one patient stands as both donor and receiver. The stem cells will be harvested from the patient’s body, most common location of which is the bone marrow, and will be transplanted back to the patient for treatment of a variety of …

Ancestor Cells and Precursor Cells

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Ancestor cell or precursor cell are generic term for a cell that has no capability to renew itself, although it has been found to generate tissue stem cells in some cases, thus contributing to the formation of tissues. Ancestor Cells and Precursor Cells Both “ancestor cells” and “precursor cells” are terms that refer to cells from which other cells are …

Amniotic Stem Cells & Amniotic fluid stem (hAFS)

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Amniotic derived cells are found in the amniotic fluid and membrane. They are also considered adult stem cells and are known to have a multifunctional capacity and multiple potency as well, as these can develop into osteogenic, myogenic, adipogenic, hepatic, neuronal, and endothelial cells.[1] Amniotic derived stem cells are the result of a unique mixture of cells from both amniotic fluid …
